Queen Margarethe and Prince Henrik hosted a gala dinner for members of the Danish Parliament during the week, and it was a dazzling affair.
Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary arrived holding hands (I just love when the royals show their romantic sides, particularly at officially events like this). Mary looked absolutely beautiful in a flowing kimono-style white gown with floral print.
The breathtaking garment was designed by Charlotte Lynggaard for Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen, an international jewellery brand which still continues to hand craft jewellery from precious raw materials at their workshop in Hellerup, Copenhagen. In 2013, the brand celebrated its 50th anniversary in conjunction with the Elle Style Awards and a selection of gowns including Mary's were designed to compliment the jewels. The show was described as a "Scandinavian Fairytale" with ethereal and whimsical pieces on display.
You can see the dress in motion (at roughly 8:00) in the video below.
The Crown Princess also wore it for King Willem-Alexander's investiture in April. I think it looked much better the second time round without the hat.
Mary wore one of her go-to tiaras. The classic piece was a wedding gift from her Queen Margarethe and Prince Henrik. It is believed it was purchased at auction. Originally it was quite a small tiara but it has been altered to include a row of pearls at the bottom and on the top of the lower spikes. Of course, the pearls are removable ensuring Mary can wear it either way. We'll be looking at Mary's tiara's in greater detail in future 'Tiara Time' posts.

Mary completed the look with her bespoke 'Lotus' earrings and a blue pendant. Terrific ensemble for the Princess.
Other honourable mentions go to Princess Marie, pictured arriving with her husband Prince Joachim (again, note the hand holding). I love the silhouette of her gown, the fitted waist and flowing skirt.
